I'm a communication designer & illustrator currently in my third year studying at the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University. I'm also minoring in Human-Computer Interaction. Previously, I worked as a design research assistant at the Center for Machine Learning and Health at CMU.

Different kinds of narratives & storytelling have always fascinated me. I'm interesting in seeing how they would play into the field of design, whether that means design that tells a story or design that considers the stories of the people who use it.

When I’m not working on design projects or drawing, I might be reading obscure Wikipedia articles, listening to Mitski, or helping out with a game about a bird.

I’m currently looking for internship opportunities for summer 2019!
